Nearly half of Donald Trump’s cabinet members are a total nightmare for the department they have been chosen to lead.
For instance, the president-elect tapped Rick Perry to head department he proposed eliminating: the Department of Energy.
So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the next labor secretary, fast food CEO Andy Puzder, is someone who once said during a 2009 OC Weekly interview that workers are “overprotected” and do not deserve breaks.
“Have you ever been to a fast food restaurant and the employees are sitting and you’re wondering, ‘Why are they sitting?'” Puzder asked, according to OC Weekly. “They are on what is called a mandatory break.”
Oh, and Puzder isn’t really fond of labor, it appears. He once said robots were better than human workers.
“They’re always polite, they always upsell, they never take a vacation, they never show up late, there’s never a slip-and-fall, or an age, sex, or race discrimination case,” he said.
Much like Trump’s other picks, Pudzer is anti-Obamacare, and much like Trump himself, he likes to objectify women.
